Fatima Al Qadiri is quite possibly the most unlikely member of the growing American club sound. Al Qadiri grew up in Kuwait amidst the Gulf War and was inextricably effected by the violence and despair . Over the past 12 years, she has lived in eight different cities, but her childhood in Kuwait has stuck in her personal life and in her music. In a few weeks (October 23), Al Qadiri’s Desert Strike EP will be released on Kingdom’s Fade To Mind imprint. If you’re not familiar, Fade To Mind is one of the foremost purveyors of American club sounds, from MikeQ’s ballroom house to Nguzunguzu’s shapeless bass creations. Musically, Al Qadiri fits in the Fade To Mind mold as she has dabbled in recent en vogue club sounds like Juke, Hip Hop and even 90’s style Gregorian trance. Like most of her other work, the EP’s overriding theme is her childhood, right down to the EP and track names. Stream “Ghost Raid” now and be sure to check out Al Qadiri’s Global Wav blog.
